Custody Evaluator: Sadia Unstable, 'Volatile,' 'Out of
"I have considerable doubts about Mrs. Loeliger's overall
stability based on volatile behavior described by others. Judge Phillips
obviously believed witnesses testifying at the hearing in May, 1991, which
described her as being out of control. He felt that Mrs. Loeliger was truly
interfering with visitation and making every effort to thwart Dr. Loeliger's
contact with his daughter because of her animosity and hatred. I can see no good

Custody Evaluator: Sadia Incapable of 'Exercising Good
Judgment', 'Consumed with Anger and Animosity'
"Dr. Loeliger [Scott] is the more stable of the two individuals
and the parent most likely to share Fatima in a reasonable fashion. Mrs.
Loeliger [Sadia] is so consumed with anger and animosity toward Dr. Loeliger
[Scott] that I do not believe her to be capable of exercising good judgment in
matters involving Dr. Loeliger or his visitation with the child."
Custody Evaluator: Scott Loeliger More Reasonable, Restrained
"While I do not believe that Dr. Loeliger [Scott] has been
completely blameless in this ongoing dispute, it is my distinct impression that
he is more willing and able to exercise some restraint and compromise. There is
a marked difference between his coping ability and that of Mrs. Loeliger [Sadia]...Dr.
Loeliger has made every effort to adjust his work hours in orders to maximize
time with Fatima."
